Presented by Iván González and Rebecca SilvaFalcón Sánchez & Associates
In today’s federal grants funding landscape, the risk of grant fraud has increased significantly, posing an enormous challenge for organizations across all sectors and levels. This webinar provides an overview of fraud and the risks in relation to grant award programs together with expert insights and strategies to identify common red flags and reduce fraud risk.
Attendees will gain an understanding of the most common fraud schemes targeting grant and social programs and learn proactive measures to detect and prevent fraud effectively as well as understanding the role of certified fraud examiners in your anti-fraud efforts.

Whether you are new to grants management or looking to enhance your existing fraud prevention programs, this webinar will equip you with the knowledge and tools to protect your organization’s assets and ensure the integrity of your grant management processes.
